The paper presents a production experiment on the prosodic realization of focus types in Stockholm Swedish. It is shown that focal accents are realized with higher f0 and longer duration when signalling narrow or corrective focus, than when signalling all-new focus. In addition, focal accents are more often followed by a L% when signalling narrow or corrective focus, and f0 falls due to L% are larger.
